The Robertson's were neighbors of the Walker's living along Walker's Creek in Rockbridge Co, VA

I have numerous DNA matches to descendants of John Walker b.1680 Wigton, Scotland and his son Alexander Walker b.1716 County Down, Ireland. In particular, Alexander's son William Anderson Walker b.1749 Rockbridge d.1826 Abbeville Co, SC. William died intestate and only his sons are known.

some dispute over Nancy E Roberson's parents. Hinshaw association has this:
" Nancy, daughter of James W. Robertson, Sr. & Mary -, was born Jun 11 1821, Tennessee.k,107,j,l (Jun - 1823).m,n"
107 - "Paint Rock Valley Pioneers", a directory of Alabama cemeteries by Kittye Vandiver Henshaw, Evelyn Rochelle, and Addie Shaver, F332 P34446 1986, in the Tennessee State Library and Archives; Also 976.195 V3hk in the LDS Family History Library (not on microfilm). Contributed by Robert Worley.
k - Contribution from Lavonda Dove (ldove2@juno.com) citing:
family group sheets from Addie Shaver, co-author of "Paint Rock Valley Pioneers".
j - Genealogy data (Henall.FTW) by George Frederick Langley, Jr..
l - Contribution from Terry Henshaw citing:
Document written by Nancy E. Roberson stating that the wife of George Washington Hinshaw was her sister (Elizabeth Robertson).

I leave Nancy in Mathew Newton Roberson's family because his will mentions her -

Note some children named Walker like the alleged father "James Walker Robertson". They were brothers so perhaps they descend from Walker's.

Nancy said her parents came from NC, but both Mathew Newton Roberson and James Walker Roberson came from SC.

More details on the family -

1820: Franklin Co, TN as "Mathew Robertson"
1830: Franklin Co, TN as "Mathew Robison" widowed, father of 7 children!
===> orphanned in 1832; children probably raised by his brother James Walker Roberson next door in Franklin Co, TN
1840: Franklin Co, TN as "James Roberson" m<5, m50-60, f30-40
